The Carolina Hurricanes find themselves one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals after securing a 3-1 victory over the New York Rangers in Game 5.

Every game in the series has gone under, and the Hurricanes hope their defense can carry the day once again in Game 6 on Saturday, May 28th, at 7:00 PM EST.

New York evened the series thanks to a pair of home wins and will need a third straight to keep their season alive.

Can the Rangers win a sixth straight at home or will Carolina advance to the Conference Finals for the second time in four years? Should bettors keep riding the under train?

Let's take a gander at the odds from WynnBET Sportsbook to help answer those questions ahead of this Hurricanes vs Rangers Game 6 matchup:

Hurricanes vs Rangers Prediction and Pick

The Rangers have excelled with their backs against the wall. They overcame multi-goal deficits and a 3-1 hole in the first round against Pittsburgh and climbed back to tie this series thanks to their resiliency.

I expect their resiliency to shine bright yet again at Madison Square Garden in Game 6. New York went 27-10 at home in the regular season and have won five straight in the playoffs. They're averaging 4.2 goals per game in that stretch and won four of those games by multiple goals.

Carolina, meanwhile, has really struggled on the road in the playoffs. They've lost all five road matches by a combined score of 21-8. Every single loss came on the puck line too, so I see tremendous value on the Rangers at +225.

But I also like the over 5.5 goals and think the odds are overreacting to the first several games of the series. New York's offense is excellent at Madison Square Garden and the over hit in all four of the Rangers' home games in the first round.

When the Hurricanes are on the road, there's usually a lot of goals scored. The over hit in all three first-round games in Boston, and including the regular season the over is 11-3-1 in Carolina's last 15 road contests.

Back the Rangers' offense to force Game 7 in a high-scoring contest. The comeback kids are back in action, let's see if they've got one more in them.

Pick: Rangers -1.5 (+225) and Over 5.5 (+125)
